At some point near the end of filming this episode, Stana Katic injured her right hand. When Kate hugs Javier, her fore and middle fingers are taped together. The few scenes prior did not show this injury and no way could have held the gun a couple of minutes prior. See more »

worth the wait
6 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Castle is back and this episode helps it to fly high. After a more-than-a-month-long wait, I finally had the pleasure to see this episode and it pushed my expectations from the coming ones even higher. This episode had all the elements(a little less in suspense or actually solving the crime I guess), it had the comic relief, the searching for clues, castle's thinking on feet power, and above all, the raw emotion and love that the core members of 12th precinct share. And even Ryan(or will he?????) Becomes dad and the bromance of Kevin-Javier is well portrayed. Castle-Becket-Ryan-Javier-Lanie-Gates and even Jenny were superb in their character. My best wishes for the upcoming episodes.
